Saying: here's an old saying about those who forget history. I don't remember it, but it's good. I believe that the government that governs best is a government that governs least, and by these standards, we have set up a fabulous government in Iraq. In order to maintain an untenable position, you have to be actively ignorant. One motto on the show is, ’Keep your facts, I’m going with the truth.’ I just think Rosa Parks was overrated. Last time I checked, she got famous for breaking the law. Equations are the devil's sentences. Isn't an agnostic just an atheist without balls? When the president decides something on Monday, he still believes it on Wednesday -- no matter what happened Tuesday. I wrote things for the school's newspaper, and - like all teenagers - I dabbled in poetry.
